Author has written 7 stories for Steven Universe.

Sometimes I like to write stories! I have a very soft spot for romance and anything that pulls on the heartstrings.

I know it says I joined in 2011, but I only really began using this in April 2015.

Languages are English (first language) and German (second language). Limited proficiency in Dutch and Spanish and very limited in Russian.

I have a Steven Universe tumblr, if you're into that sort of thing! The url is stetsuninu.

I also have an Ao3 account, but I post the same things here and there. The username is also ABirdWhoSquawks.
